About your carts:


  • The brown cart is for garbage and the blue cart is for recycling.
  • Carts are property of the City of Deerfield Beach, and are assigned to each physical address.
  • Periodically rinse with soap and water.
  • Do NOT spray paint or mark the cart.
  • Keep lids closed to prevent exposure from weather and to limit the spreading of debris in neighborhoods on windy days.
  • Carts need to be left at that property should you move.
  • Should you need an additional cart, they are available for an added charge of $14 per month.
  • All carts contain a special radio frequency ID tag (RFID) that identifies the home’s address. Each time a cart is serviced, it is scanned, and the data collected is used to help maintain efficiency.
